"A veritable candy box of glamour and personality, [Vanity Fair's Women on Women] is a celebration of women's voices." --Vogue
"A dazzling collection." --NBC News "Amazing." --Women.com "Vanity Fair magazine's latest essay collection, Women on Women, takes readers through the decades of history. While it certainly contains modern marvels like Tina Fey, Lena Waithe, and Nicole Kidman, equally appealing are essays on bygone legends including Emily Post and Frida Kahlo, written entirely by women. If, like many, your education was lacking in profound female figures, this tome will begin to fill in those gaps." --BUST "Don't miss this deep and dishy collection." --BookPage "An eminently enjoyable collection. . . . There are plenty of 'I didn't know that' moments." --Library Journal, starred review "This dazzling collection features 28 profiles of famous women, including politicians, artists, musicians, and actresses, from the last 36 years of Vanity Fair. The profiles, each of which was written by a woman, offer snapshots of their subjects at key points in time, often with remarkable prescience. . . . This is an ideal collection for those who enjoy celebrity profiles with a bit more substance." --Publishers Weekly "A vigorous selection of essays spanning the magazine's modern era that underscore the combative resilience of notable accomplished women who never gave in to what was expected of them...poignant tales of how one rises and falls and then rises again...Besides making for absorbing reading, these essays pack a feminist wallop."--Kirkus
